Clinical Virology, Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology Public Health and Laboratory Services, Institute of Clinical Pathology and Medical Research, Westmead Hospital and University of Sydney, Westmead, NSW, Australia
J Med Virol 85:1491-7. 2013..VZV DNA was detected but at low frequency and viral load in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals asymptomatic for VZV infection, compared to individuals with active VZV infection...
- Differentiation between vaccine and wild-type varicella-zoster virus genotypes by high-resolution melt analysis of single nucleotide polymorphismsCheryl S Toi
Clinical Virology, Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology Public Health, Institute of Clinical Pathology and Medical Research, Westmead Hospital, Westmead, NSW 2145, Australia
J Clin Virol 43:18-24. 2008..The analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) has enabled differentiation between wild-type genotypes from the Oka vaccine strain (V-Oka)...
